Stand-Alone Controller Features Four-Quadrant Functionality

The BDE40 controller can be used with most three-phase brushless Hall effect motors in a wide range of motion control applications. It includes four-quadrant functionality and load resistor protection. The device’s four-quadrant design is suited for applications requiring not only standard forward and reverse motor control, but also closed-loop speed control for motor slowing and stopping. Typical applications include control for production conveyor belts, production robot trolley wheels, food mixing machines, and other applications with 12-V or 24-V power supplies requiring powerful motors. The BDE40 delivers up to 360 W with 11 to 36 VDC, 10 A nominal, and a maximum continuous current of 14 A. Resistors provide protection against over-current, polarity inversion, and short circuiting. Other performance characteristics include an absorbed current of 0.1 A, temperature rise of 50°C, ambient operating temperature of 20°C to 40°C, and storage temperature of 40°C to 90°C. Input is pull-up resistor connected to 5-V Hall effect and output is type PNP open collector with maximum current of 0.02-A. Pricing for the BDE40 controller starts at $150.00 in production quantities and is available now with standard delivery of eight to 10 weeks. CROUZET NORTH AMERICA, Vista, CA. (760) 597-6322.
